You might have a good heart. The question is, “do you have a good mind?” Do you have any idea of what you’re doing, what you’re being led to do, and what you ought to be doing?
Some things are better left undone than be done the wrong way with terrible consequences.
Some lessons are best learned in classrooms at the cost of tuitions than in prison at the cost of one’s life and many others.
Yet, the best lesson is learned in Christ by grace through the faith, the revelation, that comes by the mean of hearing the gospel, by the mean of the Holy Spirit. The lesson of the love of God. This lesson calms our doubts and fears by satisfying us with the knowledge that we’re loved and cared for by God in Christ Jesus.
Due diligence requires careful examination. Anxious ambitions are always bound to failure before they’re even embarked upon. Let not a wrongly trained mind smear the character of one with a good heart.
Be still and know that God is God, so that you may rest in Christ your provider, and not be found tirelessly chasing after the wind.
A good heart without a well-informed and trained mind is like a mansion without a diligent overseer.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
Leave greed aside, and be content with whom you have, be content with who has you in Christ Jesus: God.
A good heart without a trained mind is like a child with no proper maturity. It knows no consequences. But a good heart with a trained mind is contentment for it knows the risks and the consequences that can come along so that it embarks on the least damaging path with the best available options to alleviate the pains should they be decided to come its way.
